Harvard University has an interactive test to find out if you're a racist.

If you're white, you ARE de facto racist - no need to take the test.   Grin   Grin

https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html

click on    I wish to proceed

There are several IAT tests to choose from.

Select the Race IAT

I took the test anyway.  The test determined that I am 94% racist.   Embarrassed

(I believe I could lower that score 10 points if I were to retake the test)

Through out most of Asia, the Chinese are thought of by racists in terms very similar to the way European/American racists discuss the Jews.  This is largely because Chinese folks have emigrated to a lot of other Asian countries and filled the same sort of economic roles as Jews in Europe.  This makes the locals jealous. 

Yamcha, like most racists you identify a difference then shoehorn it in to your premise.  Chinese and Japanese immigrants due better outside of their nations of origin primarily because the culture of their home countries stifles standouts not because of competition from similar folks.  Competition is generally frowned upon by folks influenced by Confucious. 

Yamcha, you are disgusting. 


This doesn't really address why the Japanese concentration camp thing isn't the biggest issue in the world and why the Japanese aren't screaming for reparations.

What do you think would have happened if blacks or Muslims had been the ones wronged? Do you think it would have just died?

Can you give an honest answer to this?

Racists: Black people suck. Brown people suck. Jews suck. They do all these horrible things.
Anti-Racists: That's all made up. None of that is true.
Opposition: Then why don't they make up that stuff about Asians?
Anti-Racists: 🦗

What I wanted to say to this:

Meh, your premise is just wrong, there are plenty of racists who don't like Asians and have plenty of mean and nasty things to say about them.  It is however, hard to maintain the illusion that your tribe is superior to the tribe who's members consistently out perform you.


Was: Yeah, but... blacks consistently outperform whites too, because the idea that whites outperform blacks is just a lie, isn't it? All made-up garbage? No basis in reality? Since racists don't care about truth, and just make shit up, why don't they make it up about Asians?
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

I was just in the 70 percentile and I completed the test as fast as I could.

You have a problem with black faces Chief?

I did.

Now that I understand the racial bias algorithm, I would score better on a re-test.

I spent too much time trying NOT to be racist.   Grin

If I were quicker on the draw, I would have scored better.  Even if I had a higher rate of errors.

I could easily drop my racist rating down to the 80s.

Why don't racists ever draw the truly horrible conclusions about Asians?

Right now? Probably some do.

My Grandpa used to do a black face act in a local Vaudeville show. I have a picture somewhere...

Actually, you don't.   Especially in California.   You may NOT refuse service to a person based on any of the following:

Race or color
National origin or citizenship status
Religion or creed
Sex
Age
Disability, pregnancy, or genetic information
Veteran status
Marital status
Sexual orientation or gender identity
Medical condition, or AIDS/HIV status
Military or veteran status
Political affiliations or activities
Status as a victim of domestic violence, assault, or stalking

Most other states require that you do not discriminate based on Race (or color), Sex, or military/veteran status.

What about white males? I thought they were fair game for discrimination in Kalifornia?

Not quite true Chief.  By law, you do not have to state a reason why you refuse service or fire someone.
